Butter London’s Shadow Clutch ($39), a configurable eyeshadow palette that allows you to switch out the shades to suit your needs. This pretty, pretty palette comes in two versions–here, I’m featuring the Natural Charms palette which comes with some beautiful neutrals. The mix of matte, shimmer, and satin shades is so pretty as it comes.

Gorgeous, right? Well, the palette can be opened and the shades replaced with others from the Clutch Wardrobe Duos ($15 each).

Swatches of all:

Switching out the eyeshadows is super easy. You just lift a little bar built in to the compact, and the little pans slide in and out.

The quality of the eyeshadows was lovely. The mattes were a little tricky, but the other formulas were (pardon the pun) really buttery.  So, beyond the nice looking compact and convenience, these shadows were actually quite excellent. According to the line, they are primer-infused, oil absorbing, and skin-balancing solutions.  Some of these shades are just beautiful.

As someone who travels frequently, it’s lovely to be able to switch out shades and keep some favorites. The lovely, slim, and high-quality eyeshadow palette is perfect for those who want some flexibility. This palette and the duos are available at Ulta.

Butter London 10x PatentThese Butter London Patent Shine 10x nail polishes ($18 each) have been released for a while now, but I’ve finally had the nails to really test them out. Essentially, these are some of the leaders of the trend toward high-coverage, high-shine, long-wearing nail polishes that offer the convenience of a gel application without the equipment (or the difficulty of removal).  According to the line, this line offers:

1. Long-wear for up to 10 days
2. Shock absorbing & chip-resistant
3. Salon colour coverage
4. Gel-like cushion and superior shine
5. Fade-resistant colour
6. Formulated to smooth nails
7. Formulated to Strengthen nails
8. Prevents breakage and peeling
9. Visibly brighter, more radiant nails
10. No formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, DBP, toluene, camphor, ethyl tosylamide, or xylene
